Pumpkin pie one step closer to state recognition

Posted by wlpo on April 17, 2015

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – While financial problems still loom large in Springfield, lawmakers have found the time to vote on the new official state pie of Illinois.

The Illinois House approved pumpkin pie as the official state pie in Illinois. State Representative Frank Mautino didn’t vote because he had an excused absence. The senate will vote on the state pie next.

Illinois produces about 85 percent of consumed pumpkins in the U.S.
